Merry Christmas from HORROR MOVIE PODCAST, where we’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… In Episode 037, we bring you our 2014 edition of CHRISTMAS HORROR, with four in-depth Feature Reviews of the following Christmas Horror-themed movies: Christmas Evil (aka You Better Watch Out) (1980) and P2 (2007) and Saint (2010) and Gremlins (1984). Then Jay of the Dead also brings you two solocast reviews of Wind Chill (2007), another Christmas Horror movie and Larry Fessenden’s The Last Winter (2006), which is not holiday-themed, but it’s cold and wintry. So, pour some egg nog or make some hot chocolate and join us!
